Favorite novel:
I graded 6 books 4,5/5 but I actually don’t have a real favorite. (By the way, what’s up with that? Grade inflation – Yikes!) If I had to choose, I probably would go with Kristin Landon’s The Hidden Worlds – the first in a dark science fiction series (with a bit of romance).

New-to-me authors: Ally Blake, Kristin Landon, Sarah Mayberry, Pauline Trent

New-to-me authors I would read again: Ally Blake, Kristin Landon, Sarah Mayberry, Pauline Trent
I was pleasantly surprised by Ally Blake – an impulse buy a few days ago because I couldn’t resist the price. / Kristin Landon’s next two books in the series are already on my to-buy list. / Sarah Mayberry looks like she could become a favorite Blaze author. I’m currently on the hunt for books still available by her (thanks Mills&Boon!). / I liked Pauline Trent’s novel Falling in Love – a gentle and sweet read.

Additional book comments
Lisa Kleypas – Blue-Eyed Devil (3,5/5)

    Jace – I think it’s the number of books I read. 😉

    LOL, well at least, you save a bit of money by not buying games 😉

    Seems like you binge on a few authors 😉 Okay, if your favorite is going to be The Hidden Worlds by Kristin Landon, then make sure you review it 😛 So I can be convinced to buy it 🙂

    I really like your monthly analysis 🙂

    Nath – LOL, yes, you’re right. Even though I only buy games when they are available for a budget price, they still cost the same as three or four paperbacks!

    Kristin Landon – it’s a dark book, review coming up as requested 😉 (well, actually, it’s already nearly finished 😛 )

    And: thanks!
